GRACEDBYGRIT: A source for holiday gifts for female fitness fanatics
Shopping local is a great way to support our economy. Giving gifts purchased through local vendors not only supports neighborhood businesses, but also show your friends and family that they deserve something unique and special.
One of the hottest gifts this season is activewear. With high-priced national brands on the top of many wish lists, one San Diego business has alternatives you and your family members will love.
GRACEDBYGRIT is a store based in Solana Beach that was founded on the concept of women’s safety and empowerment. Every piece of clothing has a pocket for a phone and also comes with a whistle. The line includes a range of premium athletic apparel including everything from quick-dry tank tops to fleece-lined leggings. And, all of the apparel is made in the USA from luxurious fabric imported from Italy.
Founders Kimberly Caccavo and Kate Nowlan recognized an overwhelming lack of choice in the market for high performance, flattering workout gear for women, especially the kind designed for running and watersports. They have designed women’s athletic apparel that not only performs at an exceptional level, but is also designed in a flattering, attractive, and unique way.
Here are some highly recommended items you should include on your shopping list for the fitness lovers on your list:
What: Known for being “heaven on leggings,” according to a customer, these best-selling leggings are perfect for staying in shape during the holidays. Wherever you are exercising, these Baby It’s Cold Outside Leggings (BICOs) will keep your muscles warm and comfortable while still retaining that slim and fit look you’ve always wanted. The company says they’re “guaranteed to keep you warm during cold winter runs, on the slopes, or by the campfire.”
What: This breathable cami comes with a built-in bra and an adjustable ruching detail making it a nice complement to the aforementioned BICOs. This product truly elicits the newest trend in contemporary fashion with a look that shows definition on the top while resting on the curves at the bottom. The Show ‘Em Whatcha Got Cami adds yet another fantastic addition to your holiday shopping list from Graced By Grit. The top is a great moisture-wicking fabric that would be great for a workout or for use as a tankini top for paddleboarding or other water sports.
What: In keeping with the slim and fit look, the Land & Sea Half Zip adds the finishing touch to your fitness wardrobe with utility thumb holes and pockets on either side to secure your smartphone, a reflective bird logo on the front and back for safety and lightweight fabric with quick dry mesh inserts will keep you cozy and comfortable before, during or after a workout.
What: This fun flowing cover is the quintessential adaptable clothing item for warm beach days; this item can also work for days where it feels exceedingly hotter than usual, too. Whether you want to wear it for the rest of the day or stash it away in your purse the Best Sun Cover Up can come to the rescue.
What: The Kate Tank top is a foundational clothing item to add to our next list of holiday of gifts. It can act as the casual top to wear while out on the town with family and friends, the exercise top for your next workout, or a long hike on a sunny day.
